Use and characterisation of new acoustic treatments and tools
Budapest (Hungary), December 2019
This Training school is dedicated to the industrial partners and aims at training them to the newly developed sound absorbing and sound controlling structures, both theoretically and experimentally.
This Training School will be organized around 3 actions. During the first day, refresher training courses will be organised. The next two days will be devoted to the training to the new methods and use of new structures, during which courses and practicals will alternate.
Wave propagation in complex and microstructured media
Cargèse (FRA), from 20/08/2019 to 30/08/2019
Registration is now open on the Training School website.
The aim of this school is to present the latest theoretical advances and experimental activities in the field of wave propagation in complex media, with a particular focus on wave guides in different contexts including the case of microstructured media, typically metamaterials.
The main objective of the school is the pooling of knowledge in this domain so that participants can learn the formalisms – techniques – methods – tools from the different communities of wave physics and thus, enlarge their knowledge for their own research. The interdisciplinary nature of this school should generate exchanges and collaborations between the different communities involved in this subject.
The affected wave domains cover acoustics, elastodynamics, electromagnetism as well as water waves.
DENORMS Action Final event and dissemination
Coimbra (PRT) – Feruary 2020
This Workshop will be jointly organized with the final event of the DENORMS Action around 4 specific actions.
First, selected members, who benefited from STSM and preferably ECI, PhD candidate and women from ITC, will present their work to the network members during a day.
Second, the results of the Round Robin Tests (mechanical characterization of poroelastic materials, low frequency measurement in reverberant rooms, and low frequency measurement of absorption coefficient) will be presented and disseminated to Action members, policy makers and people involved in the standardization of measurement methods.
Third, results arising from the Action will be presented on a public place in the city in order to increase the visibility and attract student in the field.
Finally, some materials and structures, which are usually good looking, arising from the Action and also coming from all around the world will be exposed in the Science and Technology Museum and presented to public as well as to visiting children from local schools (interpreters are expected).
The last MC meeting will also takes place during this event, during which we will take stock of the Action, the MC member will provide feedback on the Action, and the future Actions will be discussed.
60 participants are expected (40 of which will be funded, the decision about funding will be made by the Organising Committee).
Second edition of the « Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials » (SAM)
The second edition of the « Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials” (SAM) will be held from 9th to 11th October 2019 in Ischia (Italy) and organised by YRAM (Young Researchers in Acoustic Metamaterials), COST Action DENORMS CA 15125 and University of Salerno.
This second Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials is targeted to PhD candidates, Early Career Investigators (i.e. researcher whose career spun less than 8 years since the date of the PhD) and aims at sharing new advances and breakthroughs as well as fostering the community of young researchers in the field of acoustic metamaterials. The second SAM will be organised around 6 different sessions comprising 20 min talks and plenary lectures.
